Shawn Michaels Says Cora Jade’s Heel Turn On NXT Was “Heartbreaking”


Cora Jade shocked the world when she turned on her friend, Roxanne Perez. It was just a week ago that the two were posing with WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels after winning the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships. Michaels commented on the shocking turn during this week’s episode of WWE’s The Bump.

You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On Jade turning on Roxy: “[jokingly] I cannot in any way shape or form relate to what Cora Jade and Roxanne are going through. So look, it’s as old as cavemen, right? It’s jealousy, it’s envy, it’s something that every one of us experiences in our lives and in our careers. Do we have the character to not allow it to get the best of us? I, of course, could not in in my career, and clearly Cora cannot either. Once again, it’s heartbreaking to see, obviously, no pun intended. At the same time, [it makes for] riveting television, and I do have to say, strangely enough, I’m excited to see where this goes.”

WWE announced a 20-woman battle royal for next week’s edition of NXT to determine the new number one contender for the NXT Women’s Championship. Former NXT star Bayley teased that she might be part of the match.
